Bible Verses in Song: “Whom Shall I Fear

A song that resonates with me is Chris Tomlin's “Whom Shall I Fear (God of Angel Armies)” composed by Ed Cash, Scott Cash, and Chris Tomlin. I think one reason it resonates with me so much is that the words paraphrase or capture ideas described in scripture. If you've never heard the song and would like to, or if you have heard it and would like to again, follow this link to Chris Tomlin's VEVO site: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qOkImV2cJDg. As an exercise, I tried to pinpoint verses that verify the soundness of the song's lyrics. This is what I came up with.
